In timing that I now suspect isn’t a coincidence, today the Cubs announced that Matt Garza’s recent elbow scan (the one that set off last night/this morning’s kerfuffle) turned up clean. That’s very good news.
Garza has now been cleared to resume his normal offseason workout routine, as I suggested he would be. He’ll get ready in advance of Spring Training, when he’ll hopefully be ready to air it all out. For all intents and purposes, we can now say that Garza is “healthy.”
And, since Garza tweets are the order of the day, you should hear it from the man, himself:
I'm cleared for takeoff!! Strap it on tight cause we are going on one helluva ride… #getitdone#freedom#2013

Dude has a way with words. Looking forward to hearing more about his progress.
